Professional skincare company takes a proactive approach to microbead concerns



IRVINE, CA (June 18, 2015) – Clinical-based professional skincare brand Control Corrective Skincare Systems is as serious about the well being of the planet as it is about the well being of its customers’ skin.

          That’s why the Irvine, CA-based company has taken swift action to remove microbeads from its two product offerings that contained them.

          Recently deemed dangerous to the marine environment and its species, the tiny plastic cleansers designed to scrub away dead skin cells are a common ingredient in skin cleansers and exfoliating products. And while many major skincare companies are dragging their feet in eliminating microbeads from their formulations, Control Corrective took a proactive approach by both quickly removing the ingredient and finding a safe and effective replacement.

          “At Control Corrective, we believe effective skincare solutions should never come at a dangerous cost to our environment or its creatures,” said Ellen Clark, founder and president. “We always approach formulation with the best quality ingredients and safety in mind, and take immediate action when research shows otherwise.”

          In both its Medicated Pumice Wash and award-winning Cucumber Bead Cleanser, Control Corrective has replaced microbeads with jojoba beads, a natural exfoliant made from biodegradable wax. This gentle alternative exfoliates much like microbeads, but without the likelihood of harming sewer systems or the environment.

          The new, improved formulations of Control Corrective Medicated Pumice Wash and Cucumber Bead Cleanser are available now for purchase. MSRP: $31 and $28, respectively.

          Control Corrective Skincare Systems puts the power of beautiful skin into your hands. A clinical-based skincare brand since 1997, Control Corrective Skincare Systems offers comprehensive, collection-based skincare for both the professional seeking to offer superior professional solutions or the consumer looking for a user-friendly home care regimen. Available at finer salons and spas nationwide, the line offers a full range of skin care products that utilize the highest quality ingredients along with natural extracts, vitamins and essential oils.

          Control Corrective Skincare Systems products are available through skincare professionals nationwide, or by contacting the company at (866) 290-4290;
